Weapons Porn!

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Some Weird and Wonderful futuristic weapons here:

    Weapons Porn
     
  2. XM25 deployed in 2012? I doubt it!
     
  3. That XM25 is such a weird bit of kit, no idea if its actually an effective, useful, practical bit of kit but its ugly as fcuk in that horrible digicam! Paint it black surely...
     
  4. My immediate thought for the jumping robot was to stick it in a khazi and then wait for a suitable bod to drop trou' :lol:
     
  5. Attached Files:

  6. How short is that barrel?!
     

  7. I was thinking the same...
    How many S.Koreans have lost a finger or knuckle to a 20mm shell ripping out just above the grip?
     
  8. Unless the Koreans have unfeasibly long arms I think this weapon must be a joke. The butt looks to be about six inches longer than on an M16.
     
  9. Same thoughts here,

    The rifle barrel has got no chance at over 200m surely?

    with that site it looks as if it weighs a ton as well.

  10. Surely if that is a real weapon the launcher should be underslung allowing for a longer barrel, sheer madness.
     
  11. Looks to me like it could be a prop from some sci-fi show.

    Maybe they got the idea from this-

    It's the Pulse Rifle from the film 'Aliens'.
    I'm pretty sure the propmakers used a .45 Thompson SMG for the basis.
     
  13. The Primary weapon on the Korean weapon is the 20mm launcher thingy. The rifle underneath is for self-defence.
     
  14. What is interesting is that that 20mm grenade launcher in standalone form would be lighter than an assault rifle, about the same as a shotgun I should say. Culd be a bit more interesting.
     
  15. Is there any official/anecdotal evidence of the effectiveness of 20mm grenades about? Surely adapting existing 40mm grenades for airburst etc would be more effective than something with (presumably?) half the explosive power. I realise a 20mm would have a far flatter trajectory than a 40mm, making it easier to hit through windows etc, but especially with all the new UGL aiming gizmos being released isn't this not really an advantage either?

    As EX-STAB said, maybe a standalone 20mm would be far better, at least then you could ditch it in an emergency instead if having to lug around an extra X amount of weight just to keep hold of your rifle.
